DeathGlam Cheers, i will go with that then and great tip on the HE White Lions kits, i had not considered that for bits scavenging.

Jacobite That would work really well I think, remember that FW offers both decals and shoulder pads and also look at the High Elf White Lions for various lion heads (which was what I used a bit when I did a force of them).

DeathGlam Just an idea but does anybody think the army might look good, if i used the Lions head symbol for the regular marines and used the Tyrants Claw symbol for the the various 1st company units?

It is just a thought but not sure myself about it.

DeathGlam Cheers for the idea, im liking the thought of Black on the trim to, so I might just go with the 5th Company, leaves me more room for creative freedom.

I don't know if there are any details of how the corruption spread through the chapter anywhere, but maby your (invinted captain) was corrupted earlier than the second company's captain. Then, as part of the chaos gods' plan for turning the whole chapter your captain either 1) covertly took command of some of the second company or 2) re-painted some of the marines under his command to look like the second company thus focring the Second company captain to take responsibillity for his actions and thus leading him down the path of corruption? Then your collection and the games you fight are those actions

Bit of a crowbar move, but it's not as if dressing your soldiers differently or just messing around with uniforms hasn't actually happened. Look at what's supposedly happening in Ukrane right now!

Fallen I would assume that they follow the codex astartes regarding company designations.

DeathGlam Cheers again guys, i do have another question, does anybody know if an official source exists for how the Astral Claws show the company, is it the shoulder pad trim like Ultramarines and others?
05-05-14 06:27 PM
morfangdakka I agree with Midnight you should do which ever symbol you prefer. I would use the loyalist codex as well since you want to do the army before they were bad guys. If it was me I would even throw in a few guys done up in Tiger Claw armour but with the Astral Claw chapter symbol as a nod to the chapter they is rumored to have caused them to turn to chaos.

DeathGlam Thanks, that is what i hoped to hear, as i prefer the claw symbol and would prefer to use the regular marine codex to, with the Astral Claws chapter tactics, thanks for that tip.

Nice bonus is the four special characters forge world have rules for to, although i will be creating at least one captain of my own, since i plan to make this a project that spawns in to an additional Red Corsairs force lead by the same captain in both armies.
